Fall Must-Have Accessories

Now that the weather is finally starting to cool down, I think it's time to get ready for fall!  Here's a list of my fall must-have accessories.  Enjoy.

First up is this gray nail polish from OPI.  It from their Touring America Collection and is called French Quarter for Your Thoughts.  I just can't seem to get enough of gray, even on my nails.  And this shade is perfect for fall.
Next on my list are these vintage inspired earrings from Banana Republic.  They have just enough detail to give your ears a little more pizzazz than a normal diamond stud, and they look great with every outfit.  Seriously.  I've worn them with lounge t-shirts and with dresses.  Plus, at only $29.50, you can't go wrong (I got mine when they were running a deal of 30% off all jewelry, so keep your eye out for another sale!)
Also from Banana, we have these leopard flats (called Anna by BR).  Yes, that's right folks.  I found the new pair of leopard flats I was searching for here.  These babies are priced at $89.00, but I got mine during another promotion for 30% off.  Well worth it!  Leopard is great because it goes with every color-black, brown, red, green, blue--you name it.  These are definitely a must-have.  And oh-so comfortable (the padding has memory foam)!

And last but not least, I bring to you an item by one of my favorites in fashion biz, Michael Kors.  This man knows how to do a watch and do it right (three of the other watches I own are by him as well).  So naturally when it was time for a new silver watch, he was my man.  And this is the one I brought home.  I love the mix of the steel and rose gold and the little sparkle of the crystals.  I am usually found sporting gold jewelry, but ever since I've gotten this one, I haven't wanted to take it off.

Happy fall, y'all! 

Tomorrow I'm going to show you all of the crazy deals I got at Michael's today!

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :)


Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print.


A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos.

An antique baby basket helped house the gifts.
The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee.
The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar. 
And of course no shower is complete without a little something sweet. These b…

Planes or Pearls? Gender Reveal Party

On Friday, June 28th, Jon and I headed out to see the gender of Baby Reutter.  Jon wanted to find out as soon as possible, and I wanted to wait to be surprised with everyone at the reveal party the next day. So we decided that he would find out and be the one set up the "big reveal."  Baby Reutter didn't want to cooperate on the first attempt but after some cold water, walking around and sweet patience from the ultrasound tech, we got the "money shot."  I'm not going to lie, it was a bit torturous at first to not be in the know with Jon, but after the first few hours, I was good to go and so excited about the surprise for the next day.  Here we are about to head out to the reveal appointment.
Now for the reveal party on Saturday...As mentioned before, I wanted a unique theme for the party.  Since Jon is a pilot, I thought planes would be a cute idea for a boy.  For the girl, I thought of pearls; they're sweet, feminine and also happen to be my birthsto…

Giraffe 1st Birthday

Over two months later, I'm finally getting around to posting on my nephew Cohen's first birthday!  Because he was born just six days before Christmas, it was important to my sister, Meredith, to have a party to make him feel special, separate of the normal seasonal celebrations.  And I'm always up for a planning a good party!

Since Cohen was little baby, he has loved giraffes.  First introduced with the paper mache bust hanging over the changing pad in his nursery(here), my sister says he's been a fan ever since.  Using that as the inspiration, the party planning began.  Meredith found an invitation she liked at Tiny Prints and thus the color palette of green, yellow and brown was established.


Cohen wore a monogrammed yellow chevron coverall on the big day, and the cheerful pattern was also used throughout the party.  To create a prominent backdrop on the fireplace mantel, we covered a remant piece of beadboard with chevron fabric.  It made a big statement with little…
